What is the difference between a pergola and gazebo? Both buildings are designed for temporary protection from bad weather, but the gazebo is usually closed from several sides, while the construction of the Belvedere offers a comprehensive overview of the surrounding landscape.
Gazebos are the most interesting from the point of view of the landscaping. They allow you to create a place that is fenced and safe, and at the same time open to the air and elements. They also allow you to plant around the construction of favorite plants, especially vines, climbing up the walls. The gazebo should be large enough to place inside the bench. Bower of willows with a seat inside looks very original, because Lucia continue to grow, creating a living part of the garden buildings.
The Belvedere is a gazebo or a turret with a wide, usually circular overview, installed inside the bench. Usually Belvedere made of wood, light metal or any other material - it all depends on your ability and imagination. Form - any. Belvedere is designed to monitor the environment for quiet reflection or protection from the weather. From a tiny wooden Belvedere, good to watch the garden. It can also be used to mask the canopy, located behind it. Place the Belvedere in the bottom of the garden, away from sheds, sheds and greenhouses. Pinnacles can be closed curly vertically plants or left open - select the option that fits your idea of a secluded location within the garden.
The construction of gazebos
Install vertical supports in concrete or use special spikes to reliably them to fix. Make sure you put the pointy end at the top at the correct angle.
Insert two mutually intersecting boards in the labels on the tops of the posts. Boards should be parallel to each other. For additional amplification type long nails through the sides of the struts in mutually overlapping boards.
Place the rafters evenly along the length of the boards and at right angles thereto. Connect them together using special brackets. It is desirable to use brackets with corrosion-resistant coating.
Classic gazebo is a simple wooden structure. It can be of any shape and size - for example, backup and intersecting boards, like the pergola in the Japanese style. Simple gazebo pretty easy to make, especially if you buy ready-made items that are easily installed on site. First mark the area, indicating the location of buildings with nylon cord, setting marks in places where there will be each backup. After the final inspection start construction.
The cross-sectional area of the vertical posts shall be not less than 10 cm2 and 3 m height. For the simplest installation posts with jagged peaks, which are inserted into mutually overlapping boards. Make sure that they are treated with protective impregnation to extend their lifespan. Install the support struts in the concrete or use special spikes to secure the posts in the ground For precise vertical installation use level and building plumb. Connect each pair of struts intersecting boards that run parallel to each other on both sides of the gazebo. If you used the posts with notches intersecting boards are simply inserted into the slit in the desired position, and secured by staples. Then install rafters, the upper ends of which should form an angle of 90 degrees and connect them with brackets. To the rafters at. beat boards, tightly fitting them one to another. The walls of the pavilions on three sides, you can make a lattice that rose vines. To accelerate use of the finished panel-grid. If rafters are long distance, then you can pull the wire, passing it through the holes in the rafters, and then decorative greens will curl and on the ceiling of Your gazebo. Now add a bench and enjoy your vacation!
To install support gazebos need to dig a hole depth of not less than 70 cm and install the pole, the bottom of which is treated to protect against moisture bitumen and creosote in compacted soil at the bottom of the pit. Fill hole around post with concrete, periodically checking the vertical using a level or plumb. Concrete surface must have a slope "from pole to drain rain water. When you install a column on a solid surface using a metal plate fixed on a solid surface (concrete, asphalt, patio) anchor bolts. The post is fixed in a vertical position by the clamp tightened around him and connected with a metal plate on a hard surface. Another option for fixing the supporting pillars - the use of studs. Stud is a metal rod with a length of about 60 cm To its upper end welded wide collar.
Rod hammered into the ground to the bottom edge of the clip, in which is fixed the post. The use of studs reduces the time of construction (compared to concrete), but the building itself is in this case is less strong.
If you have garden space, gazebo can be mounted close to one of the walls of the garden house. In this case you will only need two pillars, struts, because the house design is held by transverse beams, bolted to the wall. In a wooden beam, which will be mounted on a wall, make a series of holes with a diameter of 2.5 cm with a spacing of 45 cm between them. With long racks, chalk and building level slide on the wall of the line corresponding to the position of the reference beam. Chalk mark the attachment point in the wall corresponding to the holes made in the timber. Drill the required number of holes, using a 35 mm drill bit, a depth of approximately 11.5 see will Strengthen the cross-beam by inserting into the holes of the steel bolts with a length of 16.5 cm and a diameter of 16 mm steel bolts through each of the holes. Tighten the bolts with a wrench until the Board is securely attached to the wall. Install the bracket along the length of the cross-boards, in order to secure the rafters.
Abstract to the material:
